OK, this sounds good. What should I do with the fake dictionary files then, 
see <http://vpv.fedorapeople.org/packages/README.tmispell-voikko>. Basically 
the README says to do "touch /usr/lib/ispell/suomi.{hash,aff}" to fake ispell 
compatible programs to see that there is Finnish spell checking available.

If I add these files, the current KDE in F-8 will see them and show Finnish as 
an ispell language, but of course it won't work, if /usr/bin/ispell is not a 
link to /usr/bin/tmispell.

Could you hack rawhide's KSpell so that it would see if tmispell is available 
and then offer Finnish spell checking, without any fake dictionary files? If 
this was possible, then I could package tmispell similarly for all branches, 
basically as a command line application without any dictionary hacks.
